Description:

Throughout his life, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was enchanted, amused, aroused, and betrayed by women-his mother, sister, wife, sisters-in-law, female patrons, friends, lovers, and fellow artists-and he was equally complex to them. But ultimately the great composer loved and respected the women he knew intimately and those whom he admired from afar. In this fascinating, evocative, and compellingly readable biography, Jane Glover, acclaimed conductor and acknowledged expert on Mozart's life and work, brings these remarkable ladies vividly to life-the real women who shared the composer's tumultuous world and inspired some of his greatest musical achievements, as well as those he dramatized in his magnificent operas.
